You need a "live CD" - koppix or I use Debian installer CD #1 for Woody.
Boot from CD - change to root and
#mount /dev/hdxx /mnt        - where /dev/hdxx is your mandrake partition
#chroot /mnt                       - change root fs to your mandrake 
CTRL+ALT+DEL             - reboot
It should do the job.
